After Friday’s devastating news, “Arctic Warming “locked in”, I still have to wonder if people, customers, readers actually “get it”. If the Arctic warms up that much that fast, it means the rest of the country and all the inhabited places, including crop lands, will warm up even more – sooner.
Imagine your refrigerator door being left open. Which will still be colder as the cold air dumps out, your kitchen or the fridge? The 3-5°C temperature rise in the Arctic (by 2050) means it will be even hotter “here” where we live and grow our food. It also means that it will happen SOONER rather then later as the heat creeps north. This is exactly the effect that has been measured and observed. And by 2080, 5-9°C warming “in the Arctic” is expected. This is WAY sooner and FAR HIGHER then any other publicly released projections (except those found here).
Jonathan Hollerman from Grid Down Consulting sent out another newsletter, and in this he states:
After reviewing the food stores of over 100 Survival Retreats, I can honestly tell you that most long-term food companies and their dishonesty will be the death of many preppers. In my experience, most preppers only have around 40% of the food they think they do. Almost all of these companies sell 6 month and 1 year food plans based on “servings” instead of overall calories. In fact, many times, these companies work really hard NOT to disclose the overall calorie count in their food plans to their customers.
I know this to be true because I’ve seen thousands of “plans” (and the buying habits) of preppers for several decades now. Almost all of them have totally failed to grasp just how much food is required to sustain themselves adequately for any length of time. Worse, most “preppers” reject climate change as real or as an existential threat happening in their lifetimes. They’ve got far more bullets then beans in some cases.
I’ve studied this phenomena for decades and published a Storable Food Scams webpage that listed the dishonest food kits, claims and snake oil promises being made, showing exactly where the issues were. One of these companies (Wise) was sued in a class-action lawsuit (2017) by some of their unhappy customers and forced to take down their advertised claims. But most of the others are still doing it. Food Assets received a “cease and desist” letter from MyPatriotSupply about the Scam page. It’s been rewritten and doesn’t name names now. Like all the other types of propaganda that I’ve written about here, they’re always trying to protect their turf. The danger here is thousands of people have been taken advantage of by false advertisements. They’re not as food prepared as they’ve been told, not even close. And then when they try to actually eat what they bought – they’re going to discover this.
Preppers are preparing to die because they have failed to set aside sufficient food storage; don’t accept the reality of climate change; don’t understand what the real threats are; and have made insufficient preparations for resupply. I brought some of this up in my interview, but wanted to say a lot more. Everyone else is preparing to die because they have failed to set aside any food storage; they don’t accept the existential threat that climate change will wipe out the global food supply sooner rather then later; and have made no plans at all for resupply (or much of anything else).
Life on this planet is going to change drastically. In your lifetime. If you have young children, they face a future of starvation. As planetary temperatures warm up (and exhibit the ‘weather extremes’ we’ve already seen), crops will fail world-wide, again and again. The ONLY insurance anyone can have against this is to become food-prepared. But almost nobody is doing this now. Everyone seems to have just quit and given up. This has had an enormous impact upon food companies who are now seriously struggling to even stay in business. Then what? When they close up (many already have), everyone will be left with garbage companies and hucksters that have prepared people to die.
I cannot explain this inexplicable behavior, especially not when the news about our planetary habitability just keeps getting worse and worse. Do people realize that it can’t get better? Ever? It will never get better. The climate we have today is the best that we will ever know again. But they’re doing nothing at all to prepare for the food shocks to come.
We’ve had a hellashish winter here. There are still several feet of snow on the ground, but it’s warming up very fast (it’ll be in the 60’s this week, so we’ll have flooding). All I did this year was shovel and plow, over and over again, and with my injuries and pain levels, it was hell. There wasn’t much else to do. I managed to publish a bunch of articles but I’m thinking (again) that this is a total waste of my time and life. Most of you don’t bother to engage at any level. Either you’re so disinterested, or fearful or don’t think it matters (it does). Or maybe you’re just as distracted as everyone else seems to be.
In any case, it sure as shit looks like everyone is preparing to die from my perspective. I know that very few people are truly serious about this reality I keep writing about. I am – and have made extensive preparations which have already saved my life over and over again. My hope was that by writing and publishing the research, science, facts and opinions found here, it would finally motivate people to act. Did it? It sure doesn’t look like it.
It looks to me like everyone is just going about their “business as usual” sort of lives. Thousands of people got all freaked out over Y2K (wrongly), and thousands more during the Mayan Calendar “scare”, and then the Obama campaign (and election) and all kinds of other ridiculous fear-mongering stupidity again and again. But then when something real comes along – they’re unable to muster any interest or activity. It’s weird as hell.
I suspect that the propaganda they’ve consumed has convinced them to only take action when the perceived “threat” resonates with their confirmation bias and societal filter. Preppers only see what they’ve been told to fear (by consummate liars), and everyone else is just indifferent unless it’s Kardashian’s boobs or something.
Well, you’ve all been warned, again and again, and again. I’m definitely going to take a break here. I’ve long since run out of money to keep this blog going and I’m not getting any younger. You want to die slowly, painfully or watch your children suffer – that’s on you. I’m finding it incredibly difficult to justify being online at all anymore and am making plans to quit.
